The mirror has bolts made to the encapsulation of the mirror housing. Directly behind the mirror, remove the inner door panel. The mirror is fastened to the door with 10 mm nuts, unplug the electrical supply and replace with new mirror (or salvage is usually just as good - even better than some aftermarket parts).

yes you can easily , first look at the hole the mirror fits in and you'll see i long thin steel springywire at the topmost section.If you study this wire you will see it just locks the mirrors backplate to the housing.so unspring this steel wire-snap in the mirror- push inwards at the bottom of the mirror so you can get to this wire at the top and with a screwdriver just nudge it back in place to lock it all in,,hope this helped,

SOURCE: The LH (drivers) side mirror replacement

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

SOURCE: 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 HD. Drivers side mirror was

You should be able to replace the glass, but I believe it is glued in place. You should be able to tell as you remove the old pieces. It is a special white glue.
I was able to get a great price for the whole mirror on ebay. even the ones with signals and heated.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: How do I replace a broken side view mirror,

Go to your local auto parts store, they should be able to order just the mirror glass. Its held on with double sided tape and a little glue, you will have to scrape the old glass off with a flat screwdriver or similar.

I have an 05 Hyundai Tiburon GT and the top side mirror housing is loose, but the whole housing is attatched to the door of my car. How can I tighten the top housing that holds the mirror?


Each Tiburon has an interior triangle cover (some with tweeter speakers in them), They are easily popped of using a small screw driver so you can access/see the three 10mm nuts holding the outside mirror to the door. When you inspect the fasteners (10mm nuts), check to see if each is tight (not loose). You may find that the one at the top could be broken.... the only solution then is replace the mirror (it'll probably have to be painted if you do replace it).

How do you replace the exterior mirror glass on a 2007 chevy tahoe. I have the the replacement glass portion but not sure how to release the broken portion from the mirror motor. Thanks for any info!


i just replaced the passenger side on mine and this is what i did.

1. on the back side of the mirror housing is a half moon shaped plastic piece. gently remove that from the housing, exposing a portion of the back side of the mirror.

2. disconnect the two wires (remember rt and lf). carefully, with a pry tool, apply pressure on the center of the back side of the mirror, it will pop loose.

3. once the mirror is off there should be a round plastic piece attached to the back side of the mirror. on the passenger side there is a tab in the upper left side. lift up on the tab and slide the plastic piece down...it should slide off.

4. once you have the plastic piece off it goes on the back of the new mirror in the opposite way. you line up the four cross tabs and slide the mirror up until the tab grabs it.

5. put the mirror back in the housing by lining the circle (on back side center of mirror plate) with the center of the mirror housing. genlty apply pressure on the center of the mirror (i had to hit it firmly with the palm of my hand) unitl it snaps into place.

6. once it snaps into place you can reconnect the two wires to the back of the mirror and install the back side plastic housing......DONE

How to access fasteners for the sideview mirror


Most of the time it snaps into place. There are metal clips that slide on to the plastic triangle that then fit into a slot on the door it's self.. Also look for possibly one screw holding it in place..Some will have those clips on the bottom of the triangle and the triangle will slide up toward the roof of the vehicle. Be careful because you don't want to break the triangle piece

2003 regal drivers mirrors lens about to fall off. Was able to push it back on it's a little more solid.


There are two snaps on the corners (where the motor connects to the mirror and moves it) diagonal of each other and a "t" snap in the middle where it pivots. The "t" snap is hard to snap in and you almost feel like your going to break the mirror. Use a light and look inside the mirror to make sure where it mounts to the motor isn't broken and then just try and snap the mirror back in place if everything looks ok. When applying pressure on the mirror use a buffer between your hand such as a towel or something. So in the event the mirror does break your less likely to get injured.

2004 Pontiac Montana side mirror


you will need to install those screw looking parts in the mirror back then you line it all up and push straight in, and yes you could break the mirror just push over the whole area and not in one place and it should snap back in. Having it warm is better than really cold of course (which might be an issue this time of year).

If you do break the glass then stop by an auto glass shop and have them get you just the glass. Snap the backing plate in first then glue in the new mirror. (hopelly you will not need this step)
